Danny Kaye Civilisation
No doubt, this selection would be deemed 'politically incorrect' in today's cultural climate. Nevertheless, in 'those times' it was deemed acceptable to mimic 'non-white' cultures in story and song.
Danny Kaye's star has faded almost to oblivion. Too bad as he was a very talented showman - singer, dancer, actor and comedian. He had a flair for dialectic expression which is somewhat evidenced in this selection. vm
